It’s safe to say that it’s been a frustrating spell with Blackburn Rovers so far for Ben Brereton.
The 21-year-old arrived for a fee believed to be in the region of £7m from Nottingham Forest back in January 2019, but has struggled to live up to that hefty price tag.
Brereton has only scored once in 40 appearances since arriving at Ewood Park, and will know that he needs to find his shooting boots as soon as possible.
Are these Blackburn Rovers statements true or false? Test your knowledge in our quiz!
Blackburn are currently sat tenth in the Championship table, and are three points adrift of the play-off places with just nine matches remaining in this year’s campaign.
Tony Mowbray will be hoping that Brereton can find some much-needed confidence in front of goal at the earliest of opportunities as they look to fire themselves into the top-six.
Plenty of Blackburn Rovers supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on whether Brereton can live up to his price tag whilst with the club.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Yes if given the chance up front for a dozen games, problem is we normally play 1 up front and Armstrong is in great form if we play 2 up front would Armstrong and Brereton work? Where does Dack go if we play 2 up front? Will be interesting if Ben can hit a run of form!

I would have said absolutely no chance. With what is happening though, who knows how players are going to come back and react and play for a season in empty stadiums. Plus let's be honest, we won't be signing anyone so might aswell use him.

Yes, if given time. And even so, the price tag quoted is not even close to as high as what was the initial fee. Sure, if he hits certain targets we'll pay more, but if he hits those targets then he'll be a success so…

No not convinced, but he needs a good run in the team. Hope he proves us all wrong and becomes a quality striker.

Will never ever be worth what we paid for him, or even close to it.
